of created, we've adopted a whole system out of treating children like adults. that is, i don't think produces the kind of public safety outcomes that one would've hoped for your we have an ineffective system. the bottom line is that the system works, that would be one thing but with a wrist visit the rate we have we know this is not a system that works and there are better ways of going about addressing some of the serious problems. sometimes public health problems and other problems that we have. so i would just like to close by saying that to me this is really, there's a tremendous opportunity. in 2011 own over 23 states implemented some form of evidence-based policy to save states money and better public safety. we've done a number of reports documenting these reforms. we are the only organization in the country that actually has an affiliate presence in every single state in the nation, and that gives us power and the legislature. we litigate in the courts. and allows us to have a broad reach in the states and for this kind of campaign to end overincarceration it is of tremendous

in the series and i tried to think what i have to offer. this morning we had a discussion on 1325. if you don't know it, learn it. some people think it is a parking ticket or something. [laughter] well done. we love blackboards. it is one of the real problems. is that most americans, even though we are very committed to the united nations being an effective vehicle for international peace, even those americans really don't know about this groundbreaking and historic resolution. every single member to take account of and try to prevent wartime and militarized violence against women and also radicalization, and radical can be good. the second part of 1325 is to commit every government member of the united states and every agency in the united nations to ensure that women have an effective voice. not somebody's wife, actually someone who comes out of grassroots organizations and those who have activity and implementation of peace building and he seeking in the postwar era. in some ways, that is a difficult to take seriously as it is violence against women and the prevention of it. the prevention
